Here are some good humored April Fools’ Day tricks to play on your family. This is a re-post from last year I thought you might enjoy.

Ideas for Dinner

• Serve things backward. Dessert first or breakfast for dinner.

• Make jello look like juice!

Pour your favorite flavor of Jello into drinking glasses and insert a straw in each glass. Let set in the fridge. Your kids will say “huh??!”

• Turn plates upside down

• Use a giant spoon, ice scoop, or spatula to eat with.

Freak out your kids or spouse by adding Crayola Color Dotz Bath Tub Tints inside the faucet! Unscrew the cap on the faucet, and set a couple of the tablets inside. When the water is turned on, get ready for a burst of color! And it’s easy with no clean up.  (Water prank found on Martha Stewart)

Are you a prankster? What’s the funniest thing you’ve pulled off?
